A Must Read Book for SMS App Developers

By mtaw

from Chapel Hill, NC

Comments about oreilly SMS Messaging Applications:

Very thorough. The material needed to build a fully functional SMS system is huge, and requires full familiarity with tens of specifications that are often buried in extremely obscure documents. Having ready access to almost the entire SMS knowledge base within a single volume is a tremendous time saver.
